When I eavesdropped two guys discussing the French philosopher, Jacques Derrida, who is regarded as the founder of deconstruction, I couldn't resist joining in their conversation.

"That name sounds vaguely familiar," I said. "I did a lot of deconstructing while I was at university."

"Did you manage to put yourself together again?" one guy asked.

"No, I'm still all over the place."
